Abstract

The present study was conducted to determine the antimicrobial activity of the crude extract of an Acinetobacter sp.
associated with an entomopathogenic nematode.The bacterial fermentation was carried out using TSB medium up to 96 hr.
After fermentation crude extract was extracted using ethyl acetate. Antimicrobial activity of the crude extract was tested by
agar disc diffusion method. Our result clearly indicated that the crude extract recorded significant antimicrobial activity.
Purification of this crude extract may result some more pure compounds with antimicrobial property which can be utilized
by the pharmaceutical industry.
